OD: Assessing Institutional Risk with International Activities

Recorded on: Wednesday, December 7, 2011 1:30 PM ET


With more and more students traveling abroad and campuses expanding their locations across the globe, the myriad of risks has increased dramatically. In collaboration with URMIA, this webcast will discuss the challenge of understanding risk management for campuses abroad. Presenters will go beyond just insurance or financial loss - and highlight how to manage the entire range of threats to the well-being of an institution.

One approach is to proactively approach international risk with an integrated assessment. Not only will this assist in identifying risky actions that may have gone undetected but it can provide you with a framework for an entire range of threats to the well-being of the institution (both at home and abroad).  Such an assessment can be a valuable tool in identifying activities that which may put the university at risk which may have previously gone undetected. 

Participants will hear from Craig McAllister, assistant director, risk management and insurance, Cornell University and David Pajak, director, risk management, environmental health and safety & chief emergency management officer, Syracuse University who will provide solutions and examples of the necessary steps to mitigate institutional risks and reduce potential exposures.
